Subject Re: Using Cayenne with RCP and Birt?
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2008 10:03:33 GMT

    I am sucessfully using cayenne in a big eclipse RCP application (25 
plugins), we use BIRT chart library to programmatically create dynamic 
charts, and we are also integrating some BIRT reports into the RCP.

I don't know exaclty what you want to do, but BIRT can't use Cayenne 
directly (you will have to develop an ODA driver to bridge the two), 
it's possible but i don't see the utility, BIRT + JDBC is pretty nice 
and simple.

You can see an example of BIRT using hibernate as data source here :
